Perkins Coie, LLP

Moses Washington, a native of Denmark, South Carolina, brings a unique perspective to the board as an alumnus of the Bamberg County HYPE team at Denmark-Olar High School. He was a standout member of the team and advocated to the South Carolina State Board of Education for healthy school food on behalf of public school students and Wholespire. Washington has been involved in Wholespire and The HYPE Project, serving as a keynote speaker and resource for various initiatives.

Washington’s experiences growing up in the Corridor of Shame and concern for the welfare of his community motivated him to create his own non-profit, the Washington Foundation. Through his foundation, he aims to increase the quality of life of those in his hometown by organizing an annual Back-to-School Bash, which provides school supplies to K-12 students.

He received a bachelor of arts degree in political science from Morehouse College, a master of information sciences from North Carolina State Central University, and a doctor of law degree from North Carolina Central State University School of Law. Washington is an associate at Perkins Coie, LLP in Dallas, Texas, an international law firm practicing technology transactions and privacy law.
